5.0 out of 5 stars Foundational work on the Armenian Christian art, 17 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Treasures from the Ark: 1700 Years of Armenian Christian Art (Hardcover)
It is no exaggeration to say that this is a foundational work on the Armenian Christian art - in fact one simply has to use superlatives in describing the importance of this book in bringing the treasures of the Armenian Christianity to the English-speaking world. With acclamations by the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Catholicos of All Armenians, this beautifully produced book is a must-have not only for all English-speaking Armenians but also everyone interested in the Eastern Christianity. There are brief historical and theological introductions but the exceptional value of this work I believe lies in the careful selection and inspired description of the many illuminated manuscripts and objects that formed part of the exhibition. This work is unparalleled by its breadth and quality of coverage of Armenian Christian art, and is unlikely to be matched for many years to come.
